Our first autumn meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 24 at 7:00 pm in the City Council Chambers. In observation of the 25th anniversary of our city’s incorporation, graphic artist Rick Morgan will speak about designing the official seal of Dana Point—a process that included several versions reflecting the thoughts and the eventual approval of our first city council.
Rick is an amateur historian, geographer and, when all this is combined with his love of graphic design, he also enjoys vexillology. Just as important, he is an entertaining conversationalist. Ingrid McGuire and Bill Bamattre, members of the inaugural city council that approved the seal in July 1989, will give their recollections of the creation of Dana Point’s official seal.
An exciting addition to the evening will be the introduction of the first commemorative Dana Point Historical Society holiday ornament, which features our city’s seal, in honor of Dana Point’s 25 anniversary. Advance orders will be taken on this limited edition that will be made available to the public for the first time on Sunday, October 5th—Home Tour Sunday–at the DPHS Museum.
